OK, it's been established that the very 'affordable' NEJE Chinese laser is very popular here. For those that have purchased and have started to use this rather versatile machine let's post PICTURES of some of your creations that have benefitted with laser engraving. Please focus and provide pictures only and keep your text to a minimum. A picture says a thousand words. I will start and hope that others will jump in.

Thanks for your input.

Perhaps the minimal text should include burn times and any other settings. With several postings, this thread will build a good reference in no time!

What does this item cost and where does one buy it?

Sorry, I searched and found locations and prices. It says, not acrylic so no plastic pens?

Most of us have this one: NEJE DK-8-KZ 1000mW Laser Engraver Printer-96.72 and Free Shipping| GearBest.com

I believe you pretty much have to move up to the 40 watt job to do acrylics and so forth. This little one is for wood, leather, etc. Much more info in this thread: http://www.penturners.org/forum/f30/chinese-laser-engraver-140404/

Info on the big 40 watt laser here: http://www.penturners.org/forum/f30/40w-lasers-discussion-140913/

If I burn Tehachapi on a few pens, trivets and magnets they should sell quickly.

Thanks for your help.

Initials and a Compass

I misjudged the length of the clip, but my friend had no preference. He wanted his initials and an image of a compass. He is into maps.

CA over walnut.

Here's one I just finished using the jig devised by Benson (Bob) Pace. Amazing what you can do with a rubber band!
This was done on Maple with six coats of CA at burn 75.

Looks great! You mentioned a jig devices by Bob, I can't seem to find it in the library? Is there a tutorial on the jig?

Played around with some acrylics and truestone. Found it will work on truestone and some acrylics. I'll say acrylics as I am not sure what they all were. With some of the acrylic it worked with yellow marker over the burn area but not with other colors. ???

for straight text alone I just use the sofware that came with the neje, for text added to an image I use Paint Shop Pro 9 that I bought several years ago. Not that hard to figure out and still works well on windows 7 so have had no need to upgrade.

So what software are you using to create. The text into an image? I have photoshop and word. I have used word, for the text just wanted to see if anyone had another alternative

The software comes with the NEJE. You can download the Android App from trusfer.com. Keep in mind it does not work well at all with Apple products. Best results with Android or Windows 64 bit architecture. Incompatible with 32 bit.
